I added a "no Astropulse" to my preferences several months ago. Tonight, an Astropulse job was downloaded and began running. I aborted it. Why did I get the download? I rechecked preferences and it still says "no Astropulse".

What is your setting for "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?"?

I dont see any AP on your list. Of course the server may be slow to update.

Thanks for your help - I did have "yes" selected for the "if no work available...." option. Too much info on too many pages I guess - never noticed that option before. Thanks again.
